This article is about planted installations designed to capture surface runoffThat potion of the water precipitated onto a catchment area, which flows as surface discharge from the catchment area past a specified point.Water from rain, snow melt, or irrigation that flows over the land surface. through an engineered soil with subterranean infrastructure.
For simpler, residential systems, see Rain Gardens.
For linear systems, which convey flow, but are otherwise similar see Bioswales.

BioretentionA shallow excavated surface depression containing prepared filter media, mulch, and planted with selected vegetation. cells are an ideal technology for:
  • People who want bioretentionA shallow excavated surface depression containing prepared filter media, mulch, and planted with selected vegetation.


The fundamental components of a bioretentionA shallow excavated surface depression containing prepared filter media, mulch, and planted with selected vegetation. cell are:

  • Biomedia - an engineered soil mix
  • Planting -

Additional components may include:

  • Impermeable membrane to prevent infiltration to soils below
